If you are using it for international travel, consider buying an ASUS. These guys make the guts for a whole lot of kit, invented the netbook (the ASUS Eee), but most importantly offer a two year international warranty. They do have a very wide range of models. If you are ever in Singapore or Hong Kong and are OK with a US keyboard, the prices are pretty good, there is no VAT in HK, and in SIN you get the 7% tax refunded at the airport. …and with 20% VAT looming..
